State of the Mew-nion: The Call of the Wild (Cat)

State of the Mew-nion is a blog feature that showcases the crazy antics of my orange tabby cat, Meow-Meow. The feature title will relate in some way to books or reading so that these posts aren’t completely unrelated to the rest of the blog. :) Who doesn’t love cute animal pictures, right?

Below is Meow Meow. He’s an inherited cat. My husband’s parents gave him to us after they moved into a pet-restricted community- the limit being two dogs. They already had two dogs AND two cats, so Tim and I took Meow and Tim’s brother Matt took Autumn, a nice, calm calico.

Meow’s cute too, but he’s not calm. He’s kind of the opposite of calm and more like the Dennis the Menace of cats. You’d think a host of catnip-flavored mice, fringed tablecloths and computer cords would keep him occupied. But no…

You've interrupted my squirrel-gazing. You shall pay...



…he has to cause serious trouble by attempting to get his greedy paws on chicken that happens to be dangerously close to a knife. One second after I took this picture (completely overlooking the knife), Tim came to the rescue and snatched away the potential kitty-skewer. Phew!

No cats were harmed in the taking of this picture



Still, at the end of the day, Meow is really cute. He scatters cat litter across the apartment and climbs into cabinets that he can’t get out of, but he’s really grown on me. Who can resist this face?

If I keep opening and closing my eyes, maybe a pile of treats will appear.



If you have any suggestions for a better feature title than the one I’ve came up with, please let me know. It’s hard to get away from being cheesy when I do it so well. 😉

I love the “I Can Haz Cheeseburger?” pictures, so please feel free to comment with funny/cute cat captions for any of the pictures above!
